Well how about this?!
Good news everyone! I fixed my delay pedal over the weekend! Many of you probably had no idea there was anything wrong with it, but all is well now.
The problem: My beloved TC Electronic Flashback X4 had stopped retaining my preset information. It holds 3 presets that are user defined and for some reason one day it just went back to factory settings. I had a 2290 digital delay, a quick slap-back type thing for leads, and a long heavily modulated Roland Space Echo sound. One day- poof. Gone.
The solution: TC has this really awesome thing they use called “technology” that allows me to update the firmware on my pedals (yeah, firmware. wild), so I went for it! I figured the worst case scenario was it wouldn’t work and I’d have to be fine with the factory sounds and seek repair, but it worked! SUCK IT TREBEK!
I’m back in delay city and it is fantastic.
Sidebar: This is the #2 reason to buy TC Electronic over Line 6. You can update your shit. Reason #1? Oh, it sounds way better.
So excited. I’ve also got my own tone prints going on now… hot damn. This is great.
